Smart City Operational Experiments in Four Regions (Yokohama, Toyota, Keihanna [Kyoto], and Kitakyushu) Steadily Yield Results; Japan Smart City Portal Reports from the Front Lines

The next-generation energy and social operational experiments that are being promoted in four regions in Japan (Yokohama, Toyota, Keihanna [Kyoto], and Kitakyushu) toward the realization of smart cities and smart communities are steadily yielding concrete results. The Japan Smart City Portal (JSCP) website transmits information on the latest trends in these operational experiments in English, Chinese, and Japanese.

Next-generation energy and social operational experiments are challenging projects toward the realization of smart cities and smart communities being promoted by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry. In the above-mentioned four regions, these experiments cover a wide range of fields, from the visualization of energy use to demand response, home energy management systems, building energy management systems, community energy management systems, and electric vehicles.

The JSCP is operated by the New Energy Promotion Council (http://www.nepc.or.jp/), which promotes operational experiments.
